fast ASHANTI Ring And Mold

This is a Ring and mold. It was designed by Johanna Dahm. We acquired it in 2016. It is a part of the Product Design and Decorative Arts department.

Johanna Dahm employed a clay mold based on a casting technique used by the Ashanti tribe of Ghana, to create a series of irregular rings, such as this one, that embody the randomness of the molding process.
